journal and government executive for inviting me to this year's a cyber security summit because i can think of no more urgent topic in today's interconnected world. the cyber domain is woven into the fabric of our daily lives. while this increased productivity has led to significant transformations and advances across our country and around the world, it has increased the importance. the flip side of all the good that comes from the internet is that cyber attacks have increased over the next decade. here is a quick sense of scale. last year, u.s. computer emergency readiness team that surprise -- provides response for the federal civilian part of of the partners, last year, the u.s. responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5000 actionable cyber security alerts. specialized teams for vulnerable and industrial systems. the words cyber security encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from the nile of service attacks to the theft of intellectual property to intrusions' against the government that works. last year, a water plant for a small town in tex

of government and perhaps most important, all the think tanks, all those apparatuses sicko amount shaping how we think about the problems of the world, wickets in the media and newspaper. so that is how we'll normalize. the great fear of george lookout years ago called for shaping of common sense or what becomes the commonsense notion is that a neutral matter. it doesn't just flow out of the air. a lot of time and effort is spent by people who run the society to shape the common sense notion. and so i think we have a politics that has adjusted to our economic system as he should have expected it to do all along. those folks will not permit as much as they can, they are not going to permit the political system to undo the results of economic system with which they are quite pleased. as long as that happens, you, i am the american people in general going to confront a political system very nicely articulated to oscillate between two parties were differences, but whose differences are not about the basic economic system and neither has the slightest interest in debating that, let alone fundamentall

that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paula pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way
flourish and do well and prevent the government from regulating of stifling job creation and continue to do that. privacy is a logical spacehab the data security will continue on we continue to look at bringing more minute factoring jobs back. >> mary bono mac, this is the communicators on c-span. we underestimate how much we forget of our own ideas. we are just terrible. it is an idea is this kind of homage this fleeting sense of something interesting and it kind of this appears so one of the things i found people doing and i try to do it as well as to write everything down but to keep everything together don't overorganize your notes and put them off into folders and things like that to allow the collisions to happen between your ideas but it's to go back the embrey read all those notes and go back and look at the notes from six years ago, and revisit that kind of self past and all of the ideas that he or she had. that is what place was like for the great land of the enlightenment. they would stitch together passages from the books they read it they would write their ow
groups held in the government controlled capital of damascus in an attempt at a gathering to position itself as an alternative to the armed rebels, citing the internal opposition on the syrian to cater. who are these people and what do you make of what they are saying? >> that's a good question. many fault lines in the syrian opposition. differences between the exiled syrian opposition a set of s-sierra, those fighting and dying on the ground in syria and those who are little more religious commission may come a arab opposition and those that are more secular opposition. and then you have those calling for the overthrow of the regime and those that are still blind to negotiate with the regime. there's been an attempt by outside powers, all these different groups of rebel forces to try to find a coherent center that can bring everything together in a coordinated way against the regime that would also draw outside support more readily as well as those fence sitters in the syrian population who don't necessarily support bashar al-assad regime, they don't see any viable alternative yet. o
of what a definition of prevention, a goal to which both governments agree what a definition would be in practice. >> woodruff: i was reading today there was disagreement inside netanyahu's own government that the israeli foreign ministry concludes that the economic sanctions are hitting iran hard calling for another round of economic sanctions. is that significant? >> the economic sanctions are hitting iran the iranian economy is in trouble and the reason why we haven't seen results with regard to the iranian negotiating position is that the p 5 plus 1 has not put on the table anything in the way-- the united states and the other five powers that have been negotiating have not put on the table significant sanctions related-- basically no sanctions relate other than the airplane parts. >> here i disagree with paul very much. the economic sanctions have been a wonderful success and an abysmal failure. they've been a success at raising the economic cost to the iranians but if their real goal is to compel the iranians to change the nuclear policy they've had no visible impact. so that
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
for the video? the idea that a government is apologizing for this video is lamentable. cheryl: isn't it true, but that is seen as a weakness when you apologize for anything. as an opponent and not an ally, the president said today. doesn't that weaken our foreign policy? >> pretty much, i think no one really fears the united states in that region. they have basically discounted the american president and he goes to the united nations and says that bashar al-assad -- he said that 13 months ago, he is still saying the same things about syria. we have done nothing about this eerie intensity and things are what they seem to us. cheryl: one thing he has done with the issue of syria, he has put hillary clinton as the face. mostly she is not going to be a secretary of state. do they know that in the muslim world? do they see her as a credible person? >> i'm glad that you took us there. secretary of state quinten stop in south africa and there was a scene of her cutting a rug on a dance floor in south africa. people look at this as ridiculous. secretary clinton has been running the clock on the syri
